mornings to talk about the wind energy industry and the importance of the trucks tax credit. but before -- and the importance of the production tax credit. before i begin i'd like to associate myself with the majority leader's remarks. we do need to extend the tax cuts for the middle class as soon as possible. that's clearly the message the american people sent on november 6 in the nationwide election that we had. i also want to respond to the comments and the conversation between the two leaders over the debt ceiling limit. it's important to recognize that when we raise the debt ceiling all we are doing is keeping faith with what congress has already appropriated, what congress has already made clear we will spend on behalf of our country and all the various ways that the federal government operates. we cannot afford to have a situation like we had august before last where we dallied and we literally shot our economy and ourselves in the foot by not extending the debt ceiling. we saw one of the rating agencies lower our national rating; first time in history. there is a way to do this
the most independent sovereign ty is the most important point. peaceful use of the nuclear energy and the other is the peaceful use for outer space. actually using outer space with the launch and show you the time of december. a little bit before december, south korea had time launch their own satellite. they delayed the launch and during the preparation, no one complained. no one criticized. whenever north korea did something with the missile launch, anyone in the international community cannot accept it. therefore some of them admit that north korea has a right to launch missiles into outer space. >> we are talking about two missiles. plus it's december, not the best of months. >> that's right. yeah. it's a quite unusual one. they strongly indicated that the 100 day hold to succeed, but they understand about the product because in the winter time and using the fuel is quite unstable and weather conditions are not so good. >> despite that they are willing to take the risk. >> that's right. yes because again -- the independent sovereignty are quite important. they are much more pr
that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai
this happen more often? joining me now is tyson slocum, director of public citizen's energy program. we have david kroetzr researcher in economic and climate change from the heritage foundation. welcome to both of you. what do you think about this. >> i think we definitely have a problem with a lack of adequate federal oversight of pipeline safety. we've got over half a million miles of transmission pipelines crisscrossing across the united states and only about 110 federal inspectors. we had a pipeline safety bill that passed congress and was signed into law by obama in 2011 but it didn't go nearly far enough in beefing up finances to hire more inspectors. to mandate the increased placement of shut-off valves that in case of an incident in a pipeline you could limit the damage. melissa: yeah. >> and also i think we have to reassess the focus over the last decade of looking at terrorism security and look more at maintenance and operations particularly --. melissa: that is interesting point. let me talk to you about the details of this one. it took place just before 1:00 p.m. >> sure. melissa
for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. energy is being produced to power our lives. while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment. we're america's natural gas. why they have a raise your rate cd. tonight our guest, thomas sargent. nobel laureate in economics, and one of the most cited economists in the world. professor sargent, can you tell me what cd rates will be in two years? no. if he can't, no one can. that's why ally has a raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> almost a year after his death, kim jong ill still looms over north korea. today they erected eight statues around the city. they instribed his name and started plans to renovate
who backed solar energy no matter of cost or consequence. >> we are the people living with it for ever. we are opposed to it. >> reporter: riverside county is home to more molar energy than anywhere in the u.s. some call it a taxpayer rip off. >> they talk about all the huge jobs and long-term benefit to the county. we will be carrying the burden of having these types of facilities for decades to come. >> there isn't a single energy source in the united states that isn't subsidized right now. this is leveling the playing field for solar. the truth is that the cost for solar power is going consistently down. >> reporter: costs are dropping but solar is still up to five times more expensive than conventional energy and the plants pay millions in local property taxes while solar pays next to nothing. when riverside tried to impose an impact fee big solar sued. >> this was an illegal tax. >> reporter: they have local environmen environmentalists on fire for bulldozing habitats and species. >> now we have seen acres of the desert bladed and undergoing ooh title-style construction. >> we are
energy is leaving some folks a little blue. those stories and breaking news all "happening now." the whole region on high alert as north korea moves ahead with plans to launch the long range rocket despite technical trouble we are hearing about. welcome to "happening now," i'm jenna. jon: i'm jon scott. the secretive nation announced a delay. the last attempt in april ended in failure. the united nations band north korea from conducting any missile tests several years ago after it tested nuclear weapons. the west considers the upcoming launch test for north korea to try to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of deliver a warhead. pwaeufdavid piper is streaming live from thailand. >> reporter: north korea wants to get this off without a hitch because the last one failed in april. a spokesman for north korea said there were technical problems with the module of the rocket but didn't elaborate. he said they were extending the launch period from now until december 29th. he added they were going ahead with final preparations for the launch despite those problems. s
to make sure america leads the world in research and technology and clean energy. i want to put people back to work rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our schools. [applause] that's how we grow an economy. i want us to bring down our deficits, but i want to do it in a balanced, responsible way. and i want to reward -- i want a tax code that rewards businesses and manufacturers like detroit diesel right here, creating jobs right here in redford, right here in michigan, right here in the united states of america. [applause] that's where we need to go. that's the country we need to build. and when it comes to bringing manufacturing back to america -- that's why i'm here today. since 1938, detroit diesel has been turning out some of the best engines in the world. [applause] over all those years, generations of redford workers have walked through these doors. not just to punch a clock. not just to pick up a paycheck. not just to build an engine. but to build a middle-class life for their families; to earn a shot at the american dream. for seven and a half decades, through good times a
on that today. i believe that the greatest use of or great use of police department energy is around people who are dealing with mental health issues and mental health crisis and the crisis intervention team is really geared to responding to that great need we have here in san francisco. i am concerned personally about the use of electronic controlled weapons, tasers, especially how they could be used in a show of force, not just bringing about compliance but in a show of force on people who are mentally ill in san francisco and i think that for me it makes a lot of sense that we make our work around crisis intervention as strong as it can be. before considering, you know, use of lethal force in the department. i am not a decision maker through but this is part of a hearing from hearing from the supervisors and members of the public. we also have here, i am happy to have chief greg sure and who is here to present on this issue. he only has a limited amount of time here this morning and so i would like to call him up first to discuss his objective or his interest, the work of the department arou
-frank with the financial industry, the automobile industry, what lisa jackson and the epa is doing to the energy sector, the national labor relations board, that's nationalizing it. the nanny state, economic fairness, economic patriotism, fairness and fair shot, those are type of policies and theories that are not consistent with a constitutional republic, definitely not consistent with our founding fathers, the type of people like that. we re-elected someone that went to $10 trillion to $16 trillion in debt. we've had an incredible earth-shattering numbers of americans in poverty, americans on food starches. we've seen a 32% in welfare spending. we've seen gas prices being exorbitantly high. he has every right to afeel arrogant and feel he'll never be held responsible. >> sean: i think republicans need to get over whatever their feelings over the election. they were elected too. i don't know one republican congressman -- correct me if i'm wrong -- that was sent there to support the president's agenda. when i vote for a congressman, i vote they'll represent my interests. so the question is, do you thin

zeros in on a failed stimulus attempt, and it usually involves a green energy company that they tried to put money into to sort of prop them up, and then the market said, no, no, we still want our suvs, we want our gas guzzlers, and we know it's bad for the environment, but we love 'em. and they're so big, and they hit so many kids. but whatever, the white house responds by saying it's like anybody's investment portfolio, you've got winners and losers. and, you know, we tried, and they're not all going to be great and, of course, the press is going to focus on the ones that lose, and i imagine they would say this is another example of that happening. >> this is true. that's what they will say. the problem for the president is that the losers are very famous, and they're very notable. solyndra, and we've had solar firms, other solar firms, a123 battery is now famous because of the china sale going on right now. so for the president whatever he says about the unfairnesses of being judged by these failures, the truth is they stick out so much, and the president can say that over time the
at the hotel that you have question marks about the energy security story in the states. >> you know, that's right. i think we are seeing supplies go up. north america, united states, canada, mexico, they've seen significant growth in oil supplies. this year one of the few areas, next year, for a few years to come. is it something that it creates supplies to flood the world's market? no. it's going to create supplies that the world market needs. if you think about the low level of automotive transportation, penetration and emerging markets, again, this longer term story, you'll add more oil coming out of the u.s. you get more demand coming. we're going to need every barrel. >> reporter: where is the price going in 2013? >> i think we'll be higher for brent, quite a bit higher for wti. and that's because we're going to see the narrowing of that brent/wti spread as the seaway pipeline comes on line. and those barrels start flowing at a cushion to the gulf. >> reporter: one last question. the fiscal cliff, we talk about it, historical, dollar down, commodities up. i see less bang for the buck

in terms of what a good compromise is come or what you should compromise on, there is this real energy around compromise. thinking about four years from now, the end of obama's second term, by that time you think the economy will improve? 51% say it will improve, and 39%, and economic well-being of the middle class -- i have to catch up with my slides here. there we go. the deficit and that will improve is 34%. the one thing they are certain is taxes will increase and government spending will increase. in the next four years, how effective do you think the each ofnt will be eaon the issues? this is how it basically stacks up. insuring long-term future entitlement programs, social security, medicaid, 65% think that what happened. 64% say creating jobs, 64% say improving public education, growing economy, and lowering the federal deficit falls down at 40%. not as much confidence there as there are on the other items. we then said the united states faces a number of challenges, including large budget deficits, national debt, slower economic recovery from the recession, high unemployment,
are the primary source of food and economic assistance, energy assistance to north korea. but then, again, the chinese had a high-level visit to north korea the day before that they announced that they were going to do this missile launch. so, even the chinese, i think, are quite frustrated. but at the same time, i would imagine that they're also not willing to completely abandon the north koreans, because they don't want to see instability in the north, which would then suggest instability along their border. and that is something they don't want to see. so china is really the country that has the most influence, and yet it's very difficult to move them to a place where the united states, japan, south korea, the other members of the six-party talks would like china to go, which is to put more pressure on the north, such that they stop these sorts of provocations and stop their missile and nuclear programs. >> all right, victor cha and spyder marks, thank you to you both for your perspective on this tonight. do appreciate it. >>> "outfront" next, with just 20 days until the fiscal cliff,

if it wanted to. it supplies 90% of the north korea's energy and substantial amounts of food to keep the north korean population there instead in china. but china has not been willing to do that because it fears that the regime would collapse and the peninsula would reunify. that's what we need to convince china long term it is in their interests. if north korea's nuclear weapons program goes on other countries in the region, japan, south korea, taiwan and others are themselves going to look whether they want nuclear weapons which would obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he just bought himself a whole lot of time in that job, didn't he? >> well i think he showed that the capability of the north koreans has been underestimated and i think you're right. this will be a political boost for him but let's be clear. this rocket-testing program and the work with iran have been going on for decades and they have had some notable failures but each failure tells them something and each succes
